BEAUTY: Art--Conor Harrington

Conor Harrington started his artistic career as a graffiti artist in Cork, Ireland. Now he works on large canvases that superimpose graffiti -like designs over what appear to be Neoclassical and Romantic paintings.

Under the color patches, drips and runs, and hand lettering lurk images that remind me a lot of Liberty Leading The People by Eugene Delacroix, and Napoleon Crossing The Alps by Jacques-Louis David, presented below.
